Skip to comments.Sen. Biden stumps in Kentucky (Biden:"I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throats")

"If I'm the nominee, Republicans will be sorry," said Biden, a Roman Catholic who ran for president in 1988. "The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat."
Biden said that in most cases, Democrats have themselves to blame for losing in so-called red states such as Kentucky and Ohio.
"We have put up too many candidates who can't connect with middle-class Americans," he said. "In the last two (presidential elections), the Democratic Party has lost its base, the middle-class votes. ... And we have played into the hands of the Republicans. We've allowed so-called social issues to be so divisive."
State Sen. Julian Carroll, a Frankfort Democrat and former governor, agreed. He said the party has to seek out the voters it is losing to Republican candidates.
"If we define who we are, the middle class will vote Democratic again," Carroll said.

The GOP is already sorry. Sorry there are any Catholics who are shameless enough to belong to the POA (Party of Abortion).
Off topic a tad...but have an Freepers in Ky heard more about rumors that Bunning will retire?
They're not hair plugs. He drills tiny holes in his scalp and the hairball he has for a brain puts out shoots.
Now that is funny!
Shut up, joe, you sacreligious jerk! When St. Padre Pio called the Rosary a "weapon", that's not what he was talking aobut.
I'm sure that's what our Lord meant when he said "love thy neighbor as theyself." :P
OK, Catholic Joe, whats your position on Abortion? And you take communion? Hmmmm... rather hypocritical of you, isn't it? Not to mention a mortal sin?
I'd like to put a 90mph rotten tomato into that punk's gob.
Nearly as good as the original "F'n" remark in Rolling Stone.
This is true!
I guess that gives me permission to hit him over the head with my Bible.
Reason #474 that I'm glad Joe Biden is no longer my senator! (Virginian by choice, 100% Delawarean by birth!)
geez.. I had to look to make sure this wasn't ScrappleFace
There's the rub! If the RATs actually define who they are, they will lose every single election. Let's hear them state all of their true leftist positions re abortion, taxes, euthanasia, big gummint, race, illegals, homos/lesbians, the family and marriage, welfare, the war and terrorism etc. etc. Don't hold your breath. They do not dare elucidate.
"Senator, is that the five decade or fifteen decade version?"
Hey Joe, why all the hatin'?
For Democrats, it always comes down to one thing - - they think they need to lie better.
Blessed are the meek, Joe.
Moral Absolutes Ping.
For your morning laugh. Funny, but not so funny. When leftists try to be religious and appeal to "regular" people, they out themselves for who they really are.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
Warning - some of the comments are not exactly - polite.
